STRONGER GAI^IA IS If members of a committee of the North
Carolina State Legislature were looking
NEEDED, C0I#1ITTEE HEARS for support for amendments to CAM that
would reduce the effectiveness of the
Act they came away empty handed from a meeting with county residents
at the Marine Resources Center.
If that indeed was their goal they heard nothing but praises for
CAT^ and demands for even strengthening it. Speaker after speaker
extolled the benefits of CAMA and recited the perils to the stability
of the barrier islands if the Act were to be tinkered with to reduce
Among the speakers was Bill Dixson, a town commissioner, and
speaking for the Town of Pine Knoll Shores. He pointed out that over
development and over disturbance of the barrier islands usually have
catostrophic results that are uncorrectable. He further stated that
Bogue Banks has four local governments located here, along with a
sizable land area controlled by Carteret County. Each has a different
development policy, in many respects, any one of which left to itself
could and probably would shorten the life of the island.
To that end, he said, ”We need a strong CAMA to help us protect
the delicate balance between man and nature.” He said the laws and
rules contained in CAMA do ensure proper and reasonable use of our
land mass. We do have, and should continue to have, he said, proper
inspection and compliance capability to enforce the laws and rules.
He concluded by stating that "We need CAMA to preserve Bogue Banks
and to provide us with the knowledge and the strength to develop Bogue
Banks for the enjoyment of its residents and the citizens of North
Carolina for the many generations to .follow.**
